    mluk, your temperatures are fine for that plant. Just make sure it's getting enough light (as snapper said, add something to reflect the light onto the plants) without burning and you'll be fine.

    Well it looks like it's forming some pitchers, so I'd just give it some time and you'll probably have some pitchers
    Good Growing!

    So I guess the conclusion we have come to is:

    Possibly a little root bound
    Could use a bit more light, but isn't entirely necessary
    Temps are fine
    Humidity is fine
    Consider more air flow

    Otherwise, looks like a very healthy plant that just needs a bit more time to settle in.

    Yeah, in my experience, truncata QoH x KoS loves being a 'houseplant' and just faints at the though of getting any sort of special TLC. So, put it in a sunny window and water it once a week without special humidity, and give it that 10ish degree or so daily temp variance you naturally get inside of a house behind a sunny window

    And royal truncata is a cross of the HL form of truncata...it prefers cool temps...not warm.

    The brown on the leaf is sunburn.....from being put too close to my 8 bulb T5 HO fixture....it happens with a few species, truncata is one of them. The newer leaves are ok since I moved it further away again, but as you can see, it pitchers nicely.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
